Let label helpers accept blocks

Reported by Stephen Celis | January 3rd, 2010 @ 05:25 PM | in 3.0.2

Label helpers should process blocks in addition to their defaults because it's common for their content to have more complex markup than text.

This, for example,

<%= f.label :terms, "<span>Accept #{link_to 'Terms', terms_path}</span>" %>

Is much easier to read in a block

<% f.label :terms do %>
  <span>Accept <%= link_to "Terms", terms_path %></span>
<% end %>

An additional perk: in our editors, the HTML markup won't be lost in Ruby string syntax highlighting.

Patch with tests in comments.
